Bounded on all sides by existing homes and a warehouse, the Apartment House crouches to the south of the block to make the most of the winter sun and to create a yard for itself.
The site is surrounded by local shops, cafes and pubs, so rather than build out the entire site, this house provides just enough room for its inhabitants – a young professional couple – to live, and enough outdoor entertaining space to make the most of Perth’s easy indoor-outdoor lifestyle. The entire roof is a concrete deck, surrounded by screens of jasmine, with views north over the suburban landscape, and west to the setting sun.
1 bed, 1 bath, a jug of Pimm’s on the roof and a cafe down the road – everything a person could need.
